How they get to know me... Hum.. I don't remember it clearly but what I know was Irene didn't tried A LOT of my gowns. She was the first few brides that can 'accept' my proposed idea on a TRANSFORMABLE wedding gown design! A one-gown-two-looks style! She asked:"Can you custom or tailor make these designs for me?" Yes :) And so, she also csutom make her wedding gown with us. Off topic! Will update on her 'transformable' wedding gown soon!

Irene and Yong will be having 3 ceremonies - a Church wedding ceremony, Chinese 'fetch-the-bride' and tea ceremony and a Indian wedding ceremony. She decided to custom make a unique cheongsam for her Chinese wedding ceremony and plan to wear it on the most important moment during the Chinese wedding ceremony - the 出门 'Chut Mon'  - groom come to fetch the awaiting bride from her room! After showing her some of the previous cheongsam designs we've done before, she finalist with a modern high collar v neckline; traditional full length cut; bare back red matte satin cheongsam design.

Above are the final complete custom make picturse of Irene's cheongsam :) and below are some of the close-up finishing details we did on her cheongsam!

Mermaid Wedding Gown with Full Patched Laces A Unique Chest-line custom tailor made by I AM A BRIDE® Wedding

Michelle's Custom Make Mermaid Wedding Gown with full patch laces
and pretty lace scallops for the edge of her gown!
Michelle first got in touch with me through email. She arranged to drop by my Publika Kuala lumpur bridal shop galleria and tried on some of my wedding gown collections that I've custom made. She immediately fall-in-love with this particular dress - a low-waist tulle netting gown with full patch laces and embellishment top:
Michelle purchased this 'love-at-first-sight' wedding gown
that I AM A BRIDE® WEDDING custom made
Michelle decided to purchase this very beautifully romantic low-waist tulle netting wedding gown for her pre-wedding photoshoot and her Penang wedding reception. *Pictures scroll down!

Michelle will have her main wedding reception at Cyberview Lodge Resort & Spa, Cyberjaya - an outdoor garden style wedding! She wish to wear some other design of wedding gown that is more suitable for her ideal wedding. She's the kind of bride who knows quite well what she prefers for her wedding gown - a 'dramatic' flare mermaid gown! :) After we've further discuss and my explanation on the type of mermaid gown design or style that suits her or not and also put her wonderful wedding venue in considerations. So, she did some 'homework' research and sent me some gown sample pictures from the net and compile them nicely into a few .pdf files with clear indications! *She explains is her way of practice on 'documenting' ideas/work, as she is a college lecturer!

Here's the sample picture of the very unique chest-line Michelle requested for her custom make mermaid wedding gown:
Unique soft 'sweet-heart' chest-line with ruched chiffon and patch laces
- sample picture from Michelle for her custom make mermaid wedding gown
I suggested instead of using chiffon, tulle netting for the ruched will be nicer as it's softer to ruch to give a 'dreamy' style and netting it's more see-thru :) So here's the final out-come of Michelle's unique personalized designed custom make mermaid wedding gown with full patch laces and matching lace scallops for her gown train ♥
